New York City Council has passed a bill postponing LL 196 full compliance deadline until March 1, 2021

We have just been informed that the New York City Council has passed a bill postponing LL 196 full compliance deadline until March 1, 2021.

For most contractors this refers to the additional 10 hours of training.

It is expected that the Mayor will sign this bill prior to September 1, 2020.

The NYC DOB Local Law 196 currently requires a total of 40 hours of training for employees to receive their SST cards. 

This includes the 30 Hours OSHA class PLUS 10 hours of additional training. 

Please note, if the employee has taken the 30 Hour OSHA class, an additional OSHA 10 Hour class will not satisfy the additional 10 hours of training requirement. 

As always, the Lovell Safety Management Safety Department will provide you with up to the minute details.
